Lebanon, Oregon- The practice for the Willamette Speedway, on April 14th, was cancelled due to the soggy and wet conditions of the track which has not allowed the proper equipment to prepare the surface. Next Saturday, April 21st, will be changed from an actual race to a practice date. If all goes well weather-wise that will be the first event for 2012 at the Lebanon facility.
“With all of the changes and new features at the facility we want to have at least a couple of practices in the books before we host our first race,” said General Manager Chris Nofziger.
The practice is scheduled to last from noon to dusk with grandstand admission being at no charge for spectators. Car and driver entry is only $25 while pit passes will be on sale for $15.
The Willamette Speedway has operated since the 1960’s and has been regarded as the “Late Model Capitol of the Northwest” for many years and is anxious to host fans with the vast upgrades and improvements done over the 2011-12 winter. The venue will host the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series and the American Sprint Car Series-National Tour along with weekly action comprising of DirtCar Late Models, USRA Modifieds, Sportsman, Classics, and Mini Trucks.
